    Well I was at Walmart today and saw the 2004 Guiness Book Of World Records. I was looking through it when I saw a pic of my favorite Cp, Darlingtonia. Then I read the record that went with it. The record was "Largest Pray Caught By an Carnivorous Plant". The record holder was Nepenthes and they went on named an few and where they are. It even said "shown below." But the picture was clearly darlingtonia and not nepenthes. I wonder who was incharge of that section? Perhapes someone needs to go up to them and give them an lesson about CPs.[/QUOTE]
    if you go back a few pages in the archives in general discussions, you'll see that I reported that error to the guiness word records about 3 weeks ago. unfortunately, they haven't replied. probably cause they can't addmit they were wrong [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    Believe it or not, Guinness World Records has goofed more than once on cp pictures. In their 2000 book, they have "most devious plant" listed as sarracenia leucophylla. The picture corrosponding is a nepenthes, right down to the vine. fools. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Actually, I believe there are many people out there that do not know what a Venus Flytrap is.[/QUOTE]
